eReaderJoy: thoughts and news from Eolake Stobblehouse about the wonderful new platform of tablets and e-reading devices. Some say, the biggest advance to reading since Gutenberg (Okay, I said that).
"Blowing on the embers of the ebook conflagration"
4.3 inches is smaller than the screen on the new Nexus Prime phone from Samsung. I'd call anything with a screen smaller than 5 inches (that doesn't make phone calls) something else besides a tablet. But that's just me. I'd say 7 inches or greater is a tablet. 5 to 7 is a gray area...
It's so darn CUTE! :-DEolake said..."The way this is going, we'll have tablets and ereaders at all kinds of sizes and prices, enough for many people to have two or three of them for different purposes."...leaving one or two of them stuck in booth seats of coffee houses, as we scramble to get out the door w/our pockets stuffed full of...beloved gadgets! :-P@Bruce: NO!!!! PLEASE DON'T tell me about a new Samsung phone! I have the Intercept and I LOVE it...if I were just able to keep my data plan for it! :-( At least I'm still able to use WIFI on it; my scheduler (LOVE that!); the alarms; AND...still be able to write/send/view g-mails on it! (I'm not even going to go look for a picture of the 'Nexus Prime' phone! No, no, no!!!! I'm NOT curious how it looks! :-((Alright...I need to distract myself! Back to the 'Black Books' First Season DVD, which needs to go back to the library, already, tomorrow!)
Makes sense, Bruce. But language developments don't always follow common sense. Already "literally" means "figuratively" for many people.
